We stopped in for lunch and found great food, friendly service, and a nice atmosphere. They also have home made deserts.

We have lost track of the number of times we have eaten at Cafe Alfresco and have never had a bad meal. The staff is friendly and provides great service. There are always specials on the menu. Friday night I had the pork chops served in a blueberry/peach salsa and am still talking about it. The place is always full... More

Italian night is Wednesday (I am going), Friday choices for seafood, best fish fry, Saturday prime rib,... More

We stopped at Café Alfresco for an early dinner and as always the food and service were marvelous. We always sit at the bar and whether Eric or Jennifer wait on us we are always provided excellent service. I had the shrimp scampi and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were fresh and delicious. As always we can... More

Wanted an early supper in Dunedin before taking the Parrotdise cruise and found this a perfect stop. We had gone there a few years ago for lunch and thought we'd try it again. We were given a friendly greeting by the manager and our waitress. We were in between lunch and dinner so opted for the lunch menu. We all... More

Stopped for lunch on our way to our hotel in Clearwater Beach. What a great discovery. The restaurant is very nice and clean. The wait staff are the friendliest, down to earth people. The food was simply delicious. I ordered the Lobster Roll and a salad. It was one of the best I've ever had! My husband ordered the Fish... More

I had read about this place before eating dinner here with my family. Service and waiter were excellent. Seated quickly, great view of downtown area of Dunedin, charming place, and good place to eat and have conversation. Food did not disappoint and highly recommend if you are in the area. We had a family dinner. I ordered the seared tuna... More

Although they have a great menu with lots of options, go for the cuban sandwich. It is perfectly made with crispy bread and is so so delicious!

My husband and I went to Dunedin for our Anniversary weekend and decided to try dinner on Saturday at Café Alfresco. It was very nice and most of the food items were very good. We especially like their signature appetizer, Feta Alfresco. My husband had the Fish (Cod) & Chips, while I had the Lobster Salad. I was not impressed... More

I am happy to hear that your overall experience was a good one. I appreciate your comments on the Lobster salad. In out continuing attempts to keep our prices as reasonable as possible we occasionally work with different suppliers. That said, taste and quality are far more important than cost. Rest assured your next Lobster Salad will be at or... More
